If you happen to be anywhere near Belgium next weekend, then it's not too late to grab tickets for Dour, which is one of Europe's biggest festivals and by far and away the biggest to be held in the French-speaking part of Belgium. This year's event is on 12-16 July and follows a record-breaking 2016 that saw Dour attracting some 40,000 campers and 235,000 festival-goers in total.

Dour's seven main stages host a wide variety of music, from rock to rap to pop, but 2017 names likely to tempt iDJ readers include (deep breath): Larry Heard, The Black Madonna, Todd Terje, Roman Flügel, Solomun, Dixon, Adam Beyer, Surgeon, Kölsch, Tale Of Us, Nina Kraviz, Andy C, DJ Hype & Hazard, Goldie, Chase & Status, SASASAS, Noisia, De La Soul, Friction, Camo & Krooked, Lenzman, Toddla T & MC DRS, A-Trak, Pendulum, M.I.A, DJ Vadim, Vitalic, Die Antwoord, Young Fathers, Machinedrum, Solange, Metronomy, Justice, The Gaslamp Killer, Shy FX, Kaytranada, Jagwar Ma, KiNK, King Jammy, Jon Hopkins, Apollonia, Palms Trax and more.

If you like the sound of all that, then tickets are still available from the Dour website, with prices ranging from €55 for a one-day ticket for the Wendesay, to €155 for a full five-day ticket with camping. Hotel, glamping and VIP packages are also available.
